Rosie Moore paints landscapes and still lifes. Moore uses her keen sense of color and painterly brush strokes to express the sensation of light. Her paintings are both intimate and joyful. Her work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Maine and Washington, DC. Moore holds a MFA form American University, Washington, DC. She also studied at Corcoran Art School, Washington, DC, and Wellesley College, Massachusetts, and she was on the faculty of the Washington Studio School from 1985-1995. Moore splits her time between Maine and Washington, DC, maintaining studios in both locations.
"She remains steadfast and true to what I believe is her purpose—how to capture the wondrous beauty of light and color in a chance world of ordinary objects. At every stage over the years, the work goes deeper. She instills her vision and offers it to us in the most modest and unassuming way, refreshingly free of bombast. Each painting is like one of those silent moments so fleeting in real life, when we catch a glimpse of how beautiful are simple things."
